. [laughter] so i know, i know karl rove wants to think he invented all of this, but -- [laughter] we've been, we've been fighting these battles for a long time. so jefferson himself saw that we were always going to be divided. he said that men have divided themselves over the opinions of whether the interests of the many or the interests of the nobles should govern the affairs of men since these questions convulsed greece and rome. he was looking back at greece and rome in the way we look back at the founding to try to figure out how much of this division, how much of the divided opinion is natural, how much is unnatural, and how do you manage and try to do what you can with what we have. and his answer, wonderfully, was in theory he would want to go back to monticello. you know those wonderful quotations, we all know them. oh, if i could only be with my books and at my farm and at my family in the peace and respite of possibility cello. well, you know, the road was open. he could have gone. new york, philadelphia, williamsburg, richmond, paris, london, hold and, i mean, he was everywhere th
strategists within the beltway. some people that you know about, that you've heard about. mr. rove, and i keep saying this because everybody says we should go back to karl rove's concept of the big tent. no. for karl rove the big tent is big, but it's empty. [laughter] because it's just to talk about the economy. talk about the economy, talk about the economy. don't talk about immigration. we went into nevada, people said don't talk about social issues, don't talk about immigration. and i said i'm going to talk about social issues, and i'm going to talk about immigration. we need -- the problem was that they thought that, the strategists told the republican candidates to win the primary you have to move to the extreme right on immigration. you have to sound like a restrictionist. and that is wrong. every study shows the american people, republicans and democrats, support immigration reform. he could have had a much more constructive message from the beginning of the primary. and if -- and i think he would have been much more competitive in the general election. now, i'm not saying that if you
for the roving ambassador for the rule of law. -- sent for the roving ambassador for the rule of law. in china, they do not have that top-down arrangement. what has been happening is that there has been a lot of foment in society of scholars, ordinary chinese citizens talking about the chinese constitution, invoking it, saying that it means something. code gaining political traction. -- gaining political traction. they may go into court, they're thrown out of court because there is no judicial review. but the coverage of the constitutional claims has an effect. changing the policy. we have seen it in a lot of discrimination cases. there are whole bunch of examples that i would discuss in more detail, but the point i am using to illustrate is how people outside of government are sometimes able to give force to block, even though the legal institutions do not -- law, even though the legal institutions do not. this is a fascinating area of the legal reform taking place in china. it is connected to the development overtime of a culture of law within chinese society. at the bedrock, it is not just
at the front. roving behind the lines with the potomac army, homer produced a series of closelybserved studies of camp life. homer's paintings of this period have an anecdotal or literary quality in keeping with the traditions of magazine illustration, but he also places new emphasis on pictorial design and the purely visual character of a scene-- qualities typical of the photographs of mathew brady and others. like the photographers of the civil war, whose equipment made action scenes impossible, homer preferred static group formations, and yet the feeling of directness in recording the ordinary lends to his work a special force. prisoners from the front, with its profound sense of the resignation, exhaustion, and human cost of war, evoked the admiration of both critics and the public and brought homer his first recognition as an artist. paris, december 1866. homer arrived for an extended visit and to see prisoners from the front and another of his civil war paintings that had been selected for showing at the universal exposition. enjoying the celrity an artist whose work was well-received, h

of a bitch. [laughter] so, i know karl rove wants to think that he invented all of this but we have been fighting these battles for a long time. so, jefferson himself saw that we were all going to be divided. she said men have divided themselves over the opinions of whether the interest of the many were of the nobles should govern the affairs of men. she was looking back to greece and rome and the founding to figure out to figure out how much of the divided opinion as natural, how much is on natural and how do you manage and try to do what you can with what we have in his answer was in theory he would want to go back to monticello. you know those wonderful quotations. we all know them. if i could only be with my books and my farm and my family and at peace and rest of monticello. well, you know the road was open, she could have gone in new york, philadelphia, richmond, paris, london, holland. he was everywhere the action was. he was irresistibly drawn to it because it has a young man he entered into what he called the board election between submission and the sword. the american revoluti
jumeau, before you were the roving ambassador for the seychelles, you were a u.n. ambassador. the u.s. has a major drone bass in the seychelles, which means you have close ties to the military. does that affect your negotiations here? >> not at all. first and foremost, we are a small island country, a member of the alliance of small island states. we are also part of the african union, but we always take the same position as the islands, because the islands have to stay together. ironically, the u.s. drones in seychelles take off from an airport only 10 feet above sea level. that should give them an idea of the kind of threat we are facing. when a tsunami hit the seychelles, it covered part of the airport, so by being in the seychelles, they cannot say they do not understand our position because they're very drones take off from the airport. we will also not allow our relationship with the u.s. to affect our tough stance here. we will continue to call for urgent and deep cuts in emissions, not just to save the seychelles. if the seychelles go under, so does new york, so does the nil
. >> norquist's big backers are republican operatives, cross roads gps, the superpack led by kingpin karl rove and the center to protect patient rights. closely tied to the ultra conservative cook brothers. they account for a majority of the budget and there's no sign that they're running scared. norquist truly believes that best way to grow the economy is to tame big government. he told me recently he will be vindicated no matter how many politicians break the pledge. what happens if they break the pledge? you have money behind you. you pile on and try to get defeated in the next election? >> these are self enforcing. why? because the american people, the elected people who they want to reform government rather than raise taxes. >> norquist is clearly looking toward the 2014 midterm elections. one high profile figure from the fix the debt movement knows that norquist's clout is clearly waning. >> i don't view this as some -- as the end of grover norquist. i don't think he suddenly disappears. but i think his ora of invincibility has largely shattered. >> so can grover convince his pledge sign
the election. but karl rove's operation is still out there running advertising. >> the time for politics has ended. we need bipartisan ideas we can all support. call president obama and tell him, "it's time to show us a balanced plan." because every day wasted is another $4 billion we're deeper in debt. and the heritage foundation, which once was a think tank of analysts writing papers has now morphed into another organization called heritage action, which raises tens of thousands of, i'm sorry, millions of dollars to run campaign commercials and do that sort of political action, which reinforces the problem of money is so, vast amounts of money are sloshing around in the system. and the members of congress are almost like, you know, flotsam floating on a sea of money. they're just bouncing around. >> so, what do you both think the public needs to know about this economic debate going on right now? cut through all of that. >> that what they're being told is necessary and good for them is, in most cases, 180 degrees opposite of what needs to happen. we need as you suggested, we need more spen
a report at each of his stops. another obligation was to -- the public which made him into a roving commercial advertisement particulaparticula rly for canadian pacific railway. a book appeared in the following year. it's hard to tell how much of it is his own prose. his comment on meeting the press in london says ,-com,-com ma reporters were awfully witty and had a lot of fun together. hence the newsroom pros back in copenhagen had given the stories final shape. but for the 44 days he went around the world, holt was the star of the show. the premise of the journey was that of circumnavigation was the ultimate boy's adventure of good but not dangerous attempt. the emphasis is reinforced by the introduction of english transition which was written by a grown-up, stating around the world everyone of us has made the voyage many times in our imagination. the introduction made at this point typical magellan is a great pioneer of the whole thing, but then fast-forwarded. whose posthumous reputation was beginning its descent to that of children's author. the stories were challenging yet fac
seem to be only too willing to do it. they're in the booking rove on fox because of that fiasco. which made good tv, but apparent apparently, i don't know, but he says republicans will get the blame for going off the cliff, but the president will be weakened the most. and orrin hatch called geithner's statement one of the most stunning and irresponsible statements that he's heard in some tile. soo can the economy avoid the cliff and rides above? anyway, senior u.s. economist and managing director at ubs. do you think we'll get a deal? >> i think we'll get a deal. do we get it before the holidays or after for markets, it matters. it's been a drag for the last nine months. so the idea that there is more uncertainty now than there was six months ago, how does that work? there was no fiscal cliff deal six months from now and still no deal. so i'm not sure why we think there's more uncertainty. i would say if you really think about it the president has a lot of ways to delay the impact. for example, our withholding table don't have to get change order january 1. even if you haven't struck a
. this is big guns. host: and h. robert asks -- host: back to the column by karl rove in while "the wall street journal." guest: speaker boehner is a very decent guy. he believes in compromise. he is reasonable. we tried to make republicans into a character as if they are insensitive and do not care about the less fortunate. i know people like to go back to the rear their comments with mitch mcconnell said their goal was to make sure the president does not succeed. the president has won again. we need to work. there are people that do not know how they will meet their mortgage or rent obligation. they didn't know how they will pay their medicine. there will compromise about getting a meal a day or to pay for their medicine. there are real issues. people have to decide if they have enough money to pay for gas. these politicians have the best benefit packages and sometimes have lost touch with the everyday common people. we have to address the real issues that americans are facing. we all have been diminished in this economy. host: we have a tweet from jim buck. mason in ohio, please go ahead wit
